Wireless vs 100 feet cat 6 cable Tags: Networking Last response: February 23, 2010 12:32 AM in Networking Share tctmd February 5, 2010 4:25:04 AM To connect a TV LAN port to a Linksys N router, which is better -- wireless adapter or about 100 feet of CAT 5e / Cat6? More about : wireless 100 feet cat cable vibe February 5, 2010 4:46:58 AM good quality CAT6 cable would bebest in almost all cases, make sure all parts used are rated CAT6 to get the full benefit. In theory it goes CAT6>Wireless N>CAT5>Wireless G but there can be other impacting factors tctmd February 6, 2010 1:09:39 AM thank you for your response Vibe -- Is your answer the same if I get CAT 5e and part of the cable is outside Related resources Cat 5e cable running 125 feet affecting internet speed? - Forum Max feet of cat5/6 between wireless routers... - Forum Cat6 vs Cat 5e - Forum Need to relocate video surveillance monitor 100 feet away from DVR - Forum Cat 5e vs Cat6 for Cable modem to Wirless Router? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Brian_tii February 23, 2010 12:32:55 AM Also something to consider is link speed. Many of the wireless N routers will include gig ethernet, assuming your TV supports it that is MUCH faster than the wireless. Either way wired in my experience usually works better than wireless.
